Moved At Times
What if Samson was the most relatable character in the Bible? What if his big problem wasn’t women and lust? What if his greatest strength wasn’t even his strength?

Why Does God Kill?
“Thou Shalt Not Kill” is a very straightforward commandment - but does God follow it himself? The Old Testament has a number of accounts where it seems as though God acts harshly - and out of anger. Is this so? Join Dean and Dr. Wolfgang Stefani as they tackle perhaps the harshest of all Old Testament Casualties - The Death of Uzzah.

Anything But That
In this episode, Dean is joined by Pastor Jeff Walper as they discuss the mutual calling they have as pastors with that of Jeremiah. Dean and Jeff find themselves strongly resonating with many of the emotions Jeremiah seemed to struggle with—the common insecurities and doubt that seems to paralyze us. Whether or not God has called you to pastoral ministry or another ministry avenue, the principle still applies: God ordained you for a calling and a purpose from before you existed. He intends to see that through until the end—providing all of your needs, down to the very words you will need to speak.

In this episode, Dean is joined by Melanie Quion, a wife and mother who has found golden nuggets of biblical parenting truths in the story of Esther.

When Left Is Right
In this episode, Dean is joined by Adam Ramdin as they delve into the curious story of Ehud. The bible specifically mentions the fact that Ehud is left handed—a detail that is not often included in bible stories. So... why? Perhaps to show us that God can use anyone, and that our perceived limitations and obstacles are often some of His most valued assets. God used Ehud, a man of apparent defect and disadvantage, to deliver His people from captivity. Unlike Ehud, many of us let our service for God stop at the idea of our weaknesses and insufficiencies; but He says to us “is there anything too hard for me?” Whether it is a skill to be learned or change to be made in our hearts, He supplies the need. “God does not call the qualified, He qualifies the called.”

When God Doesn't Make Sense
In this episode of the Why They Did That Podcast, Gem Castor take us on a faith trip. “What do you do when God doesn’t make sense?” Abraham waited over 100 years for a son, for the fulfillment of God’s promise; most of us are unbearably impatient while waiting a few months or years for an answer from the Lord. Abraham holds in one hand the promise of a nation from his seed— from Isaac; in the other, He holds the commandment from God to sacrifice his son. And yet, through this excruciating experience, Abraham’s faith in and love for God was steadfast and unmoved. The mindset of Abraham, and the secret to his faith is revealed in what does before leaving the mountain: “And Abraham called the name of the place the Lord will provide…” Genesis 22:14

Losing Your Fire
In this episode, Adam Patel invites you to follow David through a journey of trial and apparent defeat. For what seems like an eternity, David had been running from Saul—not in a game of hide-and-seek, but for the preservation of his very life. Now completely exhausted and worn beyond what he has ever experienced, David runs toward the people, the very enemies He had once boldly slain for the honor, glory, and vindication of God. David—like many of us—had one foot in, one foot out; but the mercy of God was sufficient for him, and as He is the same yesterday, today, and forever—it is sufficient for us.———————————————Watch this episode on YouTube now as well!

Running From God
In this episode, Pastor Doug Batchelor expounds on a biblical narrative more commonly recognized as a children’s story. However, this plot twisting and persistently convicting story is not only the recounting of a human much like ourselves—self-assured, “wiser than God Himself, as it were—but also one of God’s persistent pursuit of His child’s heart. So, to quote Pastor Batchelor, “what do you do when God asks you to do something that, quite frankly, you’d rather not?”Episode Sponsors:Doug Batchelor & Amazing FactsTypes and Symbols: The Conflict Beautiful

Duty or Devotion?
In the penultimate episode of Season 1, Dean is joined by Amy Ratsara, a lawyer from Michigan that simply loves the story of Martha. Martha is often relegated to a background character — someone whose life is juxtaposed to that of Mary’s and her intimate devotion to Christ. However, Jesus didn’t see Martha as “an extra” — their friendship is expounded on through the narrative of her brother Lazarus’ death, and while Jesus shows up to call Lazarus from the grave, He also shows up to reach out to his dear friend, Martha. It was time for her to begin the journey from duty to devotion. **ANNOUNCEMENT** We’re wrapping up Season 1! Join us in episode 12 as Dean and Christian recount the past and give a sneak peak of the future to close out Season 1.

Will God Ever Leave Me?
Jacob is the product of a very dysfunctional family; his parents — although both believers — have vastly different opinions on how to go about being followers of God, and this lands their son Jacob in a lot of hot water, resulting in him cheating his father and stealing his brother’s blessing. Dean is joined by Mark Quion in this episode, where they look at the results of living out your parents’ religion without ever making God your own. How far can you go before enough is enough and a final choice has to be made…on both sides?Episode Sponsor // Weimar Institute Education Department – Offering opportunities for student teaching and classroom shadowing while you’re in school!
